Milestone Solar isn’t one of the biggest solar-system contractors in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. And we have no plans to become one of the biggest.
Because when you perform several dozen solar installations a year instead of several hundred, you don’t have to resort to high-pressure salesmanship just to make your numbers. You never have to rush a job through to completion, or cut corners on the way, just to finish in time for the next one. At Milestone Solar we don’t have any technically challenged, commission-paid salespeople, who will often promise just about anything to close a sale.
I’m a technical project manager, not a salesman. I’ve learned the solar photovoltaic (PV) business not only in classrooms, but hands-on, installing and maintaining in the field. I’m one of less than 100 solar professionals nationwide to earn both the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners’ PV Technical Sales Certification and their PV Installation Professional Certification (the god standard of solar expertise). In addition to other credentials, I’m proud to hold Pennsylvania’s Certified PV Contractor credential – whose strict criteria include actual checks of solar installations and customer satisfaction.
Our approach is that it’s better to lose a sale than have someone pressured into buying – or install a system on a home or commercial building that wasn’t right for solar. I realize that while a solar system is an investment that pays for itself and then some, it’s still too big an investment to make blindly. So I make sure you know and understand every detail about the system you’re considering. I’ll never say, “We’ll have to ask engineering about that,” because I am engineering.
I’ll treat your solar installation with the same attention to coordination and detail I applied to multimillion-dollar projects as a senior project manager and systems integrator at Cisco Systems. And I’ll personally make sure your solar array goes in on time and on budget with no corners cut, that it performs as promised, and that it gives you a generation of trouble-free, dependable service.
